Young Ambassadors

The role of the Young Ambassadors

A unique educational initiative of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini and the Michelangelo Foundation.

The Young Ambassador programme brings some of the most talented students of the applied arts and design to Homo Faber. Students are carefully selected from top European educational establishments which are part of the Michelangelo Foundation’s network of like-minded organisations. Infectiously enthusiastic about design and craftsmanship, coming from all over Europe, the Young Ambassadors will immerse themselves in the content of each of Homo Faber’s 15 exhibition spaces and share their passion and knowledge with visitors. Handcrafted sneakers in partnership with Venetian heritage brand Golden Goose and clothing generously provided by Makers’ Unite.
